Here is an example of how to find the inverse function. Remember to read the lesson on this topic.

Basic steps to follow:

1. First switch the x and y variables in the equation; i.e. the x’s become y’s and the y’s become x’s

2. From the new equation above solve for y- this is the inverse

3. It’s good to verify the inverse and a function- there composite functions will always be equal to x
